I enjoy factory tours for a number of reasons,
I get to find out how my favorite products are made, I usually get to sample the products, and best of all, factory tours a frequently free. This makes them a great option for families looking to stretch their entertainment and travel dollars. My family used to take us on factory tours when we were kids, and they were always a big hit. York County, PA is called the Factory Tour Capital of the World for good reason, and I have written about some of the tours available in previous MAD2Go posts. (

June is an even better time to travel through the York County, however, due to the Made in America Tours Event from June 18-21, 2014. You will be able to go inside your favorite factories and attractions, and behind the scenes at places you might not get to see other times of the year. Artisanship large and small is going strong in America today resulting in great products at every turn. You’ll discover how they make mouth-watering snacks at Martin’s Potato Chips and Utz Quality Foods, see Sunrise Soap Company create small batches of soap with a wide variety of fragrances, learn how Naylor Wine Cellars continues to make great wine and so much more.
